The following content is an experimentation of software skills purely done as side projects to explore and understand the workflow and create narratives through computer generated imagery.

Sand Rocket

Work in progress

Software used: Blender, Cycles render engine

Description: The development of Sand Rocket started as a learning exercise of modeling tools in blender and a rough doodle of dune buggy while exploring off-road vehicle suspension systems. This is my first attempt at modeling a concept vehicle completely using polygonal manipulation rather than using traditional methods of class-A surfacing such as Autodesk Alias AutoStudio.

This is the first in a series of 3D models built over the same chassis of a dune buggy but serving different scenarios and users. Sand Rocket in particular is a high-speed dune cruiser designed for a solo speed freak.

Type – 33

Jim Clark’s race machine

Software used: Alias, Cinema4D Octane renderer

Description: Jim Clark was a famous F1 driver who drove for lotus in 1960s. He was famous for his versatile driving in many of the racing formats including touring and F1 races. It was evident that he was a genius driver behind the steering wheel by the number of races he won in a decade. Being inspired by his career I wanted to model his famous Lotus Type-33 using CAS and experiment with some CGI tools such as Cinema4D.

One thing that sets apart the formula 1 cars of that time period is their slender body with rear engine arrangement for better weight distribution and aerodynamics. On a more aesthetic note, these monocoque chassis with naked wheels would give a feel of a floating canoe while cruising at the speeds in the range of 120mph-160mph. Though the surfaces and volume of this vehicle are functionality-driven, it still appeals to me because of the balanced proportions and naked wheels, and yes how can I forget its 1500 cc engine!


The Autonomous Carrier

Software used: Alias, Cinema4D Octane renderer

Description: Panda is my attempt at visualizing the future of collective mobility. In a future not far away when smart mobility will be reaching its prime, because of overpopulation there’ll be a crunch of mobility infrastructure. This might result in an amalgamation of infrastructure into the mobility solution itself.

Panda is a multi mobility carrier that has spaces for public as well as personal mobility, it serves as public vehicle for passengers and a carrier for micro-mobility meant for end mile connectivity. Because of its size, it cruises on express ways and highways using its low flight distributed propulsion technology. The middle section of the vehicle is for passengers travelling on a longer route through and the front deck is meant for carrying light weight mobility and passenger for smaller route.
